1) STORY

(From the manual)

	Ihadurca, a being capable of existing in multiple dimensions at
one time, threatens the world of I-Praseru (Happy Island).  Though the
cost was heavy, the inhabitants of I-Praseru were able to temporarily
confine Ihadurca in Evil Zone.
	However, the danger is not over.  Ihadurca must be destroyed
before she emerges from Evil Zone.  To do this, I-Praseru called
upon mighty warriors from other worlds.
	A tournament is held to select the strongest warrior to
face Ihadurca.  These warriors have many reasons for wanting
to fight Ihadurca, but right now, they are warriors.
	Let the battle begin!


2) CONTROLS

	The controls for Evil Zone are fairly simple to get used to.
It's just two buttons: Square for defense, and Triangle for attacking.
(These can be changed in the Button Config menu on the Options screen.

Close-range attacks
	Pressing Triangle once will do two melee strikes. From here...
Triangle: Third attack.
Up, Up: Flip over opponent and attack from behind.
Forward, Forward: Dash attack into opponent.
Back, Back: Retreating attack.
Down, Down: Pop-up attack.

Down, Down, Attack: Pop-up attack. Follow this up with a Charge Attack
(see below) at the right time for an extra few hits.
Forward, Forward, Attack: Charge Attack.

Distance Attacks:
Each fighter has three Special Attacks and one Finisher, as well as three
Captures (described below).

Special One: Forward+Attack
Special Two: Back+Attack
Special Three: Up+Attack
Finisher: Back, Back, Attack

Captures

Each character has a total of four different Captures. Do these by pressing
Down+Attack.

Close Capture: This can be done from either the front or back of the opponent.
Mid-Range Capture: Do this from roughly one to three character widths away.
Far Capture: This one is done from outside four character widths away, and
these HURT in most cases!

Movement

Forward: Step forward. Hold Forward to dash towards opponent.
Back: Step backward. Hold to keep retreating backwards, and press Attack after
the second step for a Retreating Attack.
Up: Move into the background. Hold to close in on the opponent in a circle.
Down: Move into the foreground. Hold to close in on the opponent in a circle.
(Braawk.)
Up, Up, Attack: Jumping Attack. Use when next to opponent to jump over them
and attack their back.
Up, Up, Defend: Jump towards opponent.
Forward+Defend (when close): Move behind opponent.

There are special instances in the game; these can be learned about by going
into the Practice Menu and looking in the Tutorials.


3) CHARACTERS

Danzaiver

His real name is Sho Mikagami. He hopes to destroy Ihadurca in order to rescue
his partner Yuri, who's being used as a medium to keep Ihadurca imprisoned.

Sex: Male
Age: 21
Birthday: August 9th
Place of Birth: Planet Izanda (Earth's residents are rumored to be descendants
of Izanda's people.)

Blood Type: B
Hobby: Polishing Tactical Frame
Favorite Food: Pork cutlet over rice

Captures

Close (front): Danzai-capture. Picture a fisherman's suplex, only Danzaiver
flips backwards with the opponent and slams the opponent into the ground
back-first.
Close (back): Danzai-suplex. Just a back suplex toss.
Mid-Range: Houndbreak. Sho dashes into the opponent palm-first, pops the
blade of his sword out into the opponent's abdomen, the pulls it out through
their SIDE.
Far: Seingbraze. Using his comm unit, Danzaiver calls upon Geiborg, a
satellite he uses for defense, and targets his opponent for one helluva
plasma bolt.

Special Attacks
Forward: Vicetriver. Danzaiver draws his gun and fires a single bolt at the
opponent. Knockback maneuver. (Can be charged.)
Back: Lightning Drive. Danzaiver shoots a bolt of black lightning at the
opponent. Stun maneuver. (Can be charged.)
Up: Spiral Bomber. Danzaiver torpedos himself at the opponent in a spinning
sword attack.

Finisher: Danzai-burst. This is really cheesy, kids. Sho twirls his sword once
in one hand, while pulling out an extra battery with the other. Hilt and battery
come together, and Sho takes one single slash, knocking the opponent down for
a nice amount of damage.



Alty Al Lazel

He was one of the people responsible for summoning the other warriors. After
realizing that he really didn't need their help after all (ungrateful bastard!),
he decides to take on Ihadurca himself.

Sex: Male
Age: 21
Birthday: April 5
Place of Birth: Finistere Kingdom, I-Praseru
Height: 157km
Weight: 48kg
Measurements: B75cm/W65cm/H72cm
Blood Type: O
Hobby: Fishing

Likes: Rare grimoire (books of magic), Erel
Dislikes: Rain


Captures

Close (front): Art of Court Fighting #21. Al grabs the opponent's arm, and uses
it as an axis to do a back flip, dropping the opponent to the ground.
Close (back): Art of Court Fighting #34. Al jumps up onto the opponent's shoulders
and spins around for a nice-looking hurricanrana variant.
Mid-Range: Neza Juleido. Al draws his hands back, then thrusts them forward to
spear the opponent with a line of fire.
Far: (I have no idea what this move's name is..) Al draws some arcane symbols
in the air, which creates a black sphere in the air. When he points at the
opponent, the sphere bombards the opponent with meteors. VERY nice.

Special Moves:
Forward: Ramild Zahm. Al sends a fireball at the opponent. Stun maneuver.
Back: Dizam Low. Al summons a fire dragon to knock the opponent over. Knockdown.
(Can be charged.)
Up: Zaffa Vaal. Al thrusts his hands forward, creating a ball of flame in front
of him which cancels out any missile attack OR hits the opponent four times if
they're close.

Finisher: Gesh Sieode. Al traps his opponent in a sphere made of glowing
mandalas. He traces a pentacle in the air in front of him, as the mandalas
form fireballs. The final line commands each fireball (six in all) to strike
the opponent from all sides. Ouch.



Keiya Tenpouin

One of the three Earth warriors summoned to battle Ihadurca. His close friend,
Himika, was rendered comatose when 'Sakagobou no Otoko' (Inverted Pentacle Man)
attacked her. To revive her, he needs Ihadurca's power.

Sex: Male
Age: 24
Birthday: February 5
Place of Birth: Japan

Weight: 60kg
Measurements: 87cm/78cm/80cm
Blood Type: AB
Hobby: Brewing Japanese tea
Favorite Food: Japanese green tea
Likes: Himika, dolls
Dislikes: Lie, pigeons, sake


Captures

Close (front): Tenpouin Three Kicks. Keiya grabs his opponent's arm and delivers
snap kicks to their ribs, then head. He finishes up with an axe-kick, which floors
the victim.
Close (back): Tenpouin Shadow Dance. Leaping up and over the opponent's head, Keiya
grabs their head, using his momentum to fling them up and over him in turn.
Mid-range: The Black Capture. Using his power to draw his now-helpless opponent
towards him, Keiya taunts his victim before the screen goes black. Each hit makes
the screen flash, and against Setsuna, there's even a small chance of getting a
'no panties' polyglitch on the third hit! H.H
Far: Kamitsuzumi. Keiya scales a charm at his opponent. Upon contact, the charm
turns into a small demon which eats away at the opponent's insides. Not very
damaging as far as far-captures go, but it's just cool to see the enemy writhe...

Specials

Forward: Kageyajiri. Keiya sends a raven spirit to attack his opponent. Stun.
(Can be charged.)
Back: The Pentacle Capture. If the pentacle that Keiya slides towards his opponent
hits, the enemy will be captured for small damage. Using the red version (F+AA),
Keiya gains a Crystal if it hits as an added bonus!
Up: Akekazari. Keiya sends a stream of lights at his opponent. Grount-hit maneuver
as well!

Finisher: Mizukazuro. Keiya's left hand finally makes an appearance! He moves them in
a circle in front of him, charms appearing at the five points of a pentacle. Lights link
the charms together in the symbol of a pentacle, Keiya charges up, and hits his opponent
with a rather painful-looking laser attack. Ouch.



Erel Plowse

The armor-clad teenager from I-Praseru is concerned about Al's well-being and
his decision to take on Ihadurca himself. She hopes to first stop him from
fighting out of her love for him, then kill Ihadurca herself.

Dislikes: Rikanslope (werewolf), part-time jobs


Captures:

Close (front): Erel's Throw. Erel jumps up onto the opponent's hips, wrapping
her legs around their waist (woohoo!), then somersaults backwards. Sort of a
hurricanrana variant.
Close (back): Erel's Throw 'Tout Printemps'. Erel splits into two girls.
The one behind her opponent gets tapped on the shoulder, and when (s)he turns,
one Erel pushes down on the opponent's shoulders as the other trips them up.
Mid-range: Barkillassal. Erel charges at her opponent, sword swinging. The opponent
gets knocked into the ground, straddled by Erel (woohoo!) as she charges up,
and gets hit with an explosion as she leaps off of them.
Far: Chromferade. Erel leaps up, surrounding herself in an energy globe, then
divebombs into her enemy.

Specials

Forward: Kareabara. Erel launches the two claws on the back of her gauntlet at
her opponent. Stun maneuver.
Back: Nodislern. Depending on how many times you push Attack, Erel will either
sweep the opponent's feet out with a laser beam, or knock them out of the air.
Knockdown.
Up: Remivaloona. Erel spins, Sonic-like, towards her opponent with her energy
sword extended. Multi-hit is possible. (Can be charged.)

Finisher: Eldibirus. Erel traps her opponent in an energy globe, then gestures
to her other self. The opponent gets PITCHED between one Erel to the other
for a homerun! The opponent drops onto one Erel. Well, at least they get their
fall cushioned. By a babe, no less...



Midori Himeno

Midori has been training since childhood in the Fuin school of martial arts.
To her, Ihadurca is more of a test of her skills than anything else. With

Captures:
Close (front): Fuin Lion's Roar. Midori-chan wraps an arm around her opponent's chest,
then slams them full-force into the ground. Think 'Rock Bottom'.
Close (back): Fuin Asura. Midori-chan kicks her opponent into the air, then creates
two more sets of arms to grab the opponent's arms, knees and ankles. She uses
gravity to drive the opponent into her own shoulders, damaging their joints. Ow.
Mid-range: Vanishing Flowers. Midori-chan surrounds her opponent with three
other chi-clones, then proceeds to knock the crap out of the unfortunate. All
four Midori-chans end with a simultaneous flash-kick. VERY cool!
Far: Vanishing Snow. Dashing right into the opponent, Midori-chan lifts them up
with a flurry of body jabs, then spikes them back into the ground.

Specials

Forward: (don't know the name of this). Midori sends a blue sphere of chi
at the opponent. Knockback. (Can be charged.)
Back: Fuin Gensui. Midori sends a green beam of light at her opponent,
stunning them. Stun maneuver. (Can be charged.)
Up: (This is in two parts.)
1) Fuin Straight. Midori-chan drives her palm into the opponent's gut, then
blasts them back with her own chi. (F+A)
2) Junka & Senka. Midori-chan leaps up, then drives a foot into her opponent's
chest, using her momentum to send them gliding backwards until she kicks them
away with a spinning back kick. My girl! *.*

Finisher: Midori Mix "Togetsu". Lifting the opponent into the air with chi,
Midori-chan charges up, then BLASTS the opponent with energy she stored in her
right hand.



Setsuna Saizuki

Captures

Close (front): Fuin Waves. Thanks to Midori-chan's teaching, Setsuna flips her opponent
over onto their back. Lame.
Close (back): Fuin Naghi. Another move Setsuna learned from Midori-chan. The opponent
is flipped over Setsuna's head in a more elegant throw.
Mid-range: Abdomen Thrust. Setsuna runs the opponent through with her sword,
then hits them with a blast of energy. Worth it just to see her leg go
THROUGH her skirt. o.o
Far: Youshouken. Setsuna summons three faeries, then points towards her opponent
with her sword. The faeries spear her opponent, knocking them back for good damage.

Specials

Foward: Firebird Attack. This move is similar to Keiya's Kageyagiri, except the
firebird that Setsuna summons travels upward in a slight curve. (Can be charged.)
Back: Zankouran. Pressing Attack once will send one image of Setsuna's sword at
 the opponent. Pressing it twice will send a flurry of them up and towards him/her.
Up: Revolving Attack. Setsuna spins around, swinging her sword and hitting
the opponent multiple times. F+AA may hit a grounded opponent on the third hit.

Finisher: Ultra Death Attack. (How lame.) Setsuna slashes her opponent into
the air, then splits into three people. Each one slashes across the opponent's
chest in mid-air, while the third knocks them back down to earth. The only
cool-looking move she has.




Gally "Vanish" Gregman

He's not only a bounty hunter, he's THE best in the business. Upon being summoned
to I-Praseru, he was hired by Evna Abraku (The Divine Land) to kill Ihadurca.

attack. Once he's ready, he sends a total of THIRTY-SIX micromissiles at his opponent,
the combined blasts lifting the victim into the air!

5) CREDITS

Yuke's -- Underappreciated. This is one of a few games that this company's developed,
and so few people realize just how much @$$ they really kick...

Two-Mix -- Somehow, their music fits this game better than even its own music does!
Don't know who they are? Look for songs called 'Just Communication', 'Rhythm Emotion'
or 'White Reflection'; these are all themes used in Gundam Wing.

K-sama -- Always loved you, and always will. There's lots of reasons for this, but
understanding why I wrote this FAQ in the first place is definitely high on that
list. :)

That guy who ALWAYS delivered pizza whenever I ordered it about 5 minutes before
the Pizza Hut closes for the night -- You fscking ROCK!! We'd starve without you!

ManOwaR -- TRUE metalheads. Don't fsck with the Kings of Metal.

And of course, anyone I may have missed in these credits -- Sometimes, my favorite
roles are those that people don't remember.

"You broke THAT jaw?"
"He deserved it."
"Why did you do that?!"
"Why?!"
"Yeah, why?!"
"I was having a bad day!"
"Like now?!"
"Like NOW!"
